looking for ghoul

Recommended Posts

i'm new on sl and met some people on orientation island who said they could help me get started with a pack full of animations, clothes, weapons, vehicles, etc for 3,000 lindens. i paid them and they told me to pm ghoul as he will send me the pack.

but i've looked in search and there are about 20+ different ghouls, only one replied and said they didnt know anything about my pack. can anyone help me find THE player called ghoul who sells the starter packs?

If you had gotten a pack, it would have been full of old stolen items.

Ethan is almost certainly right. You've lost your 3000 Lindens, I'm afraid. You won't get them back, but you should report the scam just the same. You need to learn to do two things.

First, go to your 'dashboard' page and look at your Transaction history (it's listed under 'Accounts').  You will see your 3000 Linden transaction there, along with a Transaction number AND the name of the avatar you paid. Screenshot or copy that information.

Next, learn how to file an Abuse Report and do so. Be sure to include the information from your Transaction history.

Until you've been here for some time, don't buy anything from individuals. Shop at stores or on the Marketplace.

Colin, I'm sorry this happened to you.  Ethan, Pamela and Dillon are right...you've been scammed.  And for a pretty significant amount for a newbie, too, about $15 USD.

Do file an Abuse Report.  Your Transaction History on this web page, located in your Account section, will show the name of the person you paid the money to.  Use Help/Report Abuse in the viewer to report that person for $L Fraud.

There are other scams you could run into in SL.  I teach a weekly class in Avatar Safety at Caledon Oxbridge University, on Sundays at 10 am. SL Time (PST).  It's free to attend...maybe I'll see you there!
